    Wow! I poked my nose into this forum for the first time in a year or two and this was the top thread! I guess that's a statement that the four-thirds system, which contributed so much to modern...

    Camera Topics Re: The latest E-7 speculation

    It's too late for me. I really, really, really liked my E3, which was bullet-proof for four years. However, that sensor was marginal and I worked out that the cost of any potential new four thirds...

    I guess the reference above will cover all bases, but to save a bit of time: These formats are based on a short edge to long edge ratio of one to the square root of two (about 1:1.414). This means...

    Re: Is Olympus convincing people about 4/3?

    I think that Olympus have got the top end nicely covered, if you look at lens speed, optical quality and price. There would be a tiny proportion of users who would use (or could afford) longer...

    White balance with E300

    I notice a lot of people are not happy with the white balance performance of the E300. Early on, I started using "film mentality". I experimented and made two custom settings. One is 5200K, which...

    Re: Phil's completed 410 Review

    I love how this review is so fair, giving the camera its best chance and comparing the different models to their best potential. Best review I've read for this camera. It deserves to sell well.

    Re: Kit lens for E3?

    The numbers on the 12-60 look good but it has big shoes to fill. I NEED the extra two mil at the wide end but I wouldn't get one if I lost the excellent distortion control, the consistency across...

    No way I can afford a "proper" long ZD lens. But for now I am using a screw mount Sankor I got for about $50, with an adaptor. It is a 300mm/4.5 and, though only manual focus, it does a decent job...

    Well, that just proves we are all built differently! Just to be really contrary, when I took the grip off the 300 I was struck by how GOOD the camera looked. I must be weird!

    Thanks Alec.

    I see you are a Northlander. Lucky thing. I spent a while in Kerikeri in the '80s and loved it. Don't quite know quite how I got stuck in the Manawatu!

    You know, it is no surprise the E300 grip did not sell well. I usually love a grip (I have big hands) but just took the one off my E300. It is a very odd design. Very thick to get your hands...
